KBO picks and predictions
Tuesday’s slate features plenty of opportunities for value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
Lotte Giants ML (-146) vs Kia Tigers
The Lotte Giants ended last week with a nice win, beating the SSG Landers by a score of 7-4. They are now 29-34-2 on the season, but still sit in 8th place in the league standings. To begin the new week, the Giants will start Charlie Barnes. He is 7-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.72. In 15 starts this season, he has allowed 29 earned runs over 96.0 innings.
The Kia Tigers lost their game on Sunday to the Samsung Lions by a score of 7-3. The Tigers have lost 2 games in a row and are now 34-30-1 on the season. They remain in 4th place in league standings. The Tigers will counter with Im Gi-Yeong, who is 1-4 on the season and has an ERA of 3.98. In 9 starts this season, he has allowed 23 earned runs over 52.0 innings.
Gi-Yeong has not been terrible this season, but Barnes has still just been the superior pitcher. He has had his struggles against the Tigers this season, but because the Tigers are in the midst of a losing streak, backing the Giants will be the play.
NC Dinos vs KT Wiz ML (-146)
The NC Dinos ended their week with a win, beating the Hanwha Eagles on Sunday morning by a score of 6-3. The Dinos are now 26-38-2 on the season and remain in 9th place. They will start Lee Jae-Hak on Tuesday morning, who is 0-6 on the season and has an ERA of 4.93. In 10 starts this season, he has allowed 23 earned runs over 42.0 innings.
The KT Wiz ended their week with a win, beating the Doosan Bears by a score of 7-1. The KT Wiz are now 32-33-2 on the season and are in 5th place in the league standings. They will counter with Um Sang-Back, who is 5-2 on the season and has an ERA of 3.97. In 15 appearances (10 starts), he has allowed 26 earned runs over 59.0 innings.
This matchup is more about fading Jae-Hak, who has yet to win a game this season. The KT Wiz are also on the verge of getting back to .500 on the season, therefore backing them to win will be the play on Tuesday.
Kiwoom Heroes vs Samsung Lions +1.5 (-124)
The Kiwoom Heroes lost their game on Sunday to the LG Twins by a score of 4-2 in extra innings. The Heroes are now 39-27-1 on the season and remain in 2nd place in the league standings. They will start Tyler Eppler on Tuesday, who is 4-4 on the season and has an ERA of 3.86. In 13 starts this season, Eppler has allowed 32 earned runs over 74.2 innings.
The Samsung Lions won their game on Sunday, beating the Kia Tigers by a score of 7-3. The Lions are now 32-34 on the season and have won 2 games in a row. With their 2-game win streak, they are now up to 6th place in the league standings. The Lions will counter with Heo Yun-Dong, who is 2-0 on the season and has an ERA of 3.38. In 4 starts this season, he has allowed 7 earned runs over 19.0 innings.
The starting pitching matchup is relatively even here, but Eppler’s struggles against the Lions could be the biggest factor in determining a winner. For that reason, backing the Lions to keep this game close will be the play.
Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +412.
Extra KBO picks and predictions for Tuesday, June 21st
Doosan Bears vs SSG Landers ML (-122)
Both teams are coming off losses on Sunday morning and while the SSG Landers have a starter making his season debut on Tuesday, the Doosan Bears have a guy on the mound worth fading. Lee Young-Ha is 5-4 on the season with an ERA of 4.39. In 1 start against the SSG Landers, he has an ERA of 16.20, making the SSG Landers worth a play.
Hanwha Eagles vs LG Twins ML (-158)
The Hanwha Eagles lost their 8th straight game on Sunday, and are now facing the 3rd-place LG Twins. The Twins are 5-1 against the Eagles this season, so backing them to beat the Eagles again looks to be worth a shot.
